(From YouTube; 2014)
It ain't hard to tell when a single by an unknown rapper has been given that Lyor Cohen-subsidized promotional push because it starts getting play on the UK urban music TV channels a day or two after the profile articles about its artist start appearing on media outlets like XXL and Complex. Pretty cool how a one eyed Cormega lookalike from New Jersey has ended up making the best Skooly solo song of 2014, but I take major umbrage with Fetty Wap's claim that he's "probably one of the first rappers/singers to come on the scene with (only) one eye and be comfortable with it" - what, rappers done forgot about Hostyle from Screwball?

Can you believe Tom Silverman actually stumped up the money for a video where Screwball flew around New York in a fucking helicopter? No wonder Tommy Boy Records ended up going bust in the early noughties.
